    I have searched high and low.

    I have read different threads about moving mp3 files to the DROID and such. I have even seen others that have posted saying the various files that work on the DROID.

    What I am trying to find out is if .wma files work on the DROID?

    I just transferred files to my DROID and when I open the music files they are not there.

    1. I mounted my phone

    2. I opened "view files" option on pop-up menu

    3. I transferred (3) .wma files to the SD card... NOTHING!

    4. I created a "MUSIC" file and placed them in that file... NOTHING!

    5. I deleted the "MUSIC" file and created a "Sounds" file... NOTHING!

    6. HELP!!!

    Have I done something wrong? What am I missing? Can .wma files be converted to mp3 files?

    I love DROID, but my BlackBerry Storm 2 does all this and then some.

    This is why I question the superiority of the DROID at times. I know it is superior, but the small things that can be done easily on a BlackBerry takes a college degree for the DROID.

    Thanks,

    google your problem. i found several answers on adding and playing .wma files. you might need Motorola media link (free dl from moto).

    Media link is not needed to add the files.....You can just mount and drag/drop the files on the Droid.

    What music app (file) are you putting them in?

    I placed them on the SD card and they don't show up in my music file.

    When I select the file (without double clicking) and then put the cursor back on the file, it shows as a .wma file. How can I tell if it is protected or not.

    From everything I have read here, they should work without any app or help.
